07+ How does the rear caliper come off?

It was easy on my 06, I'm changing all the brake pads but I dont see how to get the rear caliper off. There is no bottom bolt like on the 06. Is it the allen key hole in the upper right that holds it on? I fit in a 6MM and tried to turn it but it was not budging so I did not want to force it to much. I went through all 10 pages on here and searched on youtube and google and have come up with nothing.

I wouldn't (and have never) disassemble caliper from carrier.....maybe wait a while?

I change pads when i do tires, which is every 2.5K miles for a rear Bt -S20

That 6mm hex bolt is heller tight, tried it once and said "nuh uh"

I'm not taking the rear tire off just to change pads. The rear tire has a few hundred miles on it, it was just changed and I like to change all my brake pads at once and I'll be doing the fronts soon so I wanted to do the rear as well.

You don't even need to take the caliper off if you're not planning to rebuild or clean it or anything. Just take that pin at the back out and the pads will pull right out.

I was considering that but did not think the pads would come out by just removing the pin holding them on

Yep that's all that holds them on. They sit in a groove on the front side and the pin holds them on the back. Take the pin out and slide the pads to the rear of the bike.

awesome thanks, I'll do that when I get some garage time. Still learning the differences between this bike and what I was used to when I owned my 05 and 06

Never having to pull off or put on those ram air duct covers is worth the entire cost of the bike

Yeah... That is one of the benefits of owning premium sports bikes! Suspension changes on the fly, brake changes in minutes (in between track sessions), and parts compatibility.

You are confused since the rear tire doesn't need to come off

Why the hell would you pull off the rear tire just to change 2 brake pads when all that is required is pulling out one 8MM bolt. Even on the pre 07's it was the 12MM Bolt and then the 8MM bolt holding the pads on. I would never pull a rear tire to change the rear brake pads unless the tire was coming off for some other reason

Either way its one bolt or one nut lol. It makes no difference just do it....

You said you went threw 10 dif threads, google, youtube. You would have been done in a few secs just pulling the wheel....

So your pissed b/c of how I spend my time wanting to do something? I searched through 10 pages b/c I was not going the stupid route and pulling the rear tire off to change brake pads. I went through 10 pages to see how the caliper comes off, not how to take the rear tire off. I already know how that comes off but at the time I did not know the caliper does not come off the same way as the 05 / 06. Oh sorry I should have know 100% of everything about a bike I've had for 3 weeks, my bad

I suggested taking the wheel offas thie caliper is much easier to service/clean with while loose.....

When I change pads, I always give the caliper pistons a good cleaning and then I flush the system.

If I am doing pads, then it's usuallly time for a fluid change , and a good cleaning keeps your seals in better condition.

apologies, I presumed you had an interest in doing a thourough job.........not just slap on a pair of pads.....
